Process Industries Photo articleThe enormous instrumentation installed base in the process industries requires a digital transformation solution, which can make use of information from devices communicating via current field communication solutions. Each of these existing communication protocols employs different software structures, or information models, to represent the same information.

To ensure interoperability and seamless access to device information, it is necessary to standardize on the form and basic contents of the information models for certain device classes independent of a specific communication protocol—thus enabling seamless instrumentation information flow throughout the enterprise.
